Differences Proto Malay and Deutero Malay
Differences Proto Malay and Deutero Malay1. Old Malay (Proto Melayu)
The Old Malay were the Austronesians from Asia (Yunan) who first came to the archipelago in about 1500 BC. They came to the archipelago through two streets.
a. The western road from Yunan (South China) through the Malacca Strait (Malaysia) goes to Sumatra into Java. They carry a square ax tool.
b. The north (east) road from Yunan via Formosa (Taiwan) goes to the Philippines then to Sulawesi and then enters into Irian. They carry an oval ax tool.
Old Malay nation has a stone culture because the tools are made of stone that has been advanced, that is already mashed, unlike the ancient human tool is still rough and simple. Their cultural results are known as square axes found in Indonesia, such as Sumatra, Java, Bali and Kalimantan.
 The oval ax is widely used those through the north road, namely Sulawesi and Irian. According to Von Heekern's research, in Kalumpang, North Sulawesi there has been a mixture of square ax and ax-shaped axes brought by Austronesians coming from the north of Indonesia through Formosa (Taiwan), the Philippines and Sulawesi.

2. The Young Malay (Deutero Melayu)
The Malay Youth called Deutero Melayu came from the Yunan region of South China around 500 BC. They entered the archipelago through the west road only. The Young Malay people succeeded in urging and mixing with the Proto Malays. The Deutero Malay nation entered through the Gulf of Tonkin (Yunan) to Vietnam, then to the Malacca Peninsula, continued to Sumatra, and eventually entered Java.
Deutero Malay nation has a more advanced culture compared to Proto Melayu. They can already make things from bronze and iron. The famous cultural results are the ax of the funnel, the shoe ax, and the nekara. In addition to metal culture, the Deutero Melayu also developed Megalithic culture, which is a culture that produces buildings made of large stones.
The results of Megalithic culture, for example, menhir (stone monument), dolmen (stone table), sarcophagus (corpse corpse), stone grave, and punden berundak. The ethnic groups of Indonesia, including the descendants of Malay Youth (Deutero Melayu) are the tribe of Java, Malay, and Bugis. Before the Malay group entered the archipelago, in fact there have been groups of people who first live in the region. They include primitive peoples with a very simple culture.
Those who belong to the primitive nation are as follows.

- Human Pleistosin (ancient)
Ancient human life is always moving places with a very limited ability. Similarly, the culture so that the style of this ancient human life can not be followed again, except for some aspects only. For example, the technology is still very simple (paleolitik technology).
- Tribe of Wedoid
Remnants of the Wedoid tribe still exist today, for example, the Sakai tribe in Siak and Kubu tribes on the border of Jambi and Palembang. They live from gathering (gathering forest products) and simple cultures. They are also very difficult to adjust to modern society.
- Negroid tribe,
In Indonesia there is no longer the remains of Negroid tribe life. However, in the interior of Malaysia and the Philippines the descendants of the Negroid tribe still exist. Tribes belonging to the Negroid race, for example, the Semang tribe in Peninsular Malaysia and the Negrito tribe in the Philippines. They were finally pressured by the Modern Malay people to occupy only the isolated hinterland
